Re: Big Freakin' Sails

Actually, if you look closely, the helmsman is held by his tether...not his grip on the wheel (look at 0:11). They look to all be wearing harnesses at least...and I bet they are tethered in.

It does show you how quickly and easily you can go over, though, eh?

Imagine what it was like down below (no warning) - especially for the dudes in the starboard bunks!!!

I think that was Iker poking his head out of the companion-way afterward yelling "Esta bien?"

(Man, I can't believe this thread has almost 200K views. That's freakin' cool.)
